Eye: Antique gold.

Nose: The first nose is graced by notes of dry fruits and a distinct hint of orange. Warm cinnamon and gingerbread follow, accompanied by strong rancio - testifying a long maturation. 

Palate: Powerful, with a fine balance of spice and fruits. The beautiful length in the mouth gives a superb sense of finesse.


Please note: Upon receiving the product, there may be some subtle changes to the final bottle design. This is because each and every bottle is a unique one of a kind and will be produced individually - on demand. As a result, production time may take up to two months.

Please note that the label of the bottle in the picture differs slightly. The above mentioned growth area is correct.

Description

Mauxion Petite Champagne Lot 56: a Stunning Single Harvest

This exceptional Cognac was distilled in a wood-fired boiler (in contrast to the gas boilers of today) before being laid down in French oak casks and aged in clay cellars underneath the family castle. Dating to the mid-50s, the Mauxion Petite Champagne Lot 56 is the product of a single harvest, making it a wonderful snapshot into the past. In order to preserve its most delicate aromas, it has not been chill-filtered and is presented at a generous cask strength of 45%.

The origin of the Mauxion family goes back to 1575 when Pierre Mauxion was born in the village of Houlette, still home to the Mauxion family after thirteen generations. Antoine Mauxion was the first of the family to produce eaux-de-vie, back in 1743, and since then ten generations have followed in his traditions of caring for the vineyard, making wine and distilling in a traditional copper pot still. 

Uniquely, Mauxion Selection offers a range of single crus in different sizes, including Grande Champagne, Petite Champagne, Borderies and Fins Bois. To preserve their flavor fully, they are bottled at cask strength and without any blending and the long maturation these Cognacs go through allow them to develop exceptional complexity and depth. 

Presentation of the Bottle

The stunning decanter certainly does the liquid justice, with its classic tall shape and a handmade bauble-shaped glass stopper. A metal plaque carries the credentials of the brand, and a simple wooden presentation box completes the package. All Mauxion bottles are numbered and presented with a certificate from the producer stating the origin of the Cognac.

How to Enjoy

This outstanding vintage Cognac is one for the tulip glass. Mauxion has chosen to bottle it at cask strength, allowing the drinker to make a choice between drinking it neat or adding a dash of water to lower the alcohol percentage.
